If you want the state record to be full of state jumpers, organise a record full of people from that state. If they're good enough, they'll get it. Job done.

If not, well, better work a bit harder then.

we have a winner...

I think you missed the point a bit, maybe because I did not disclose some data...

The state record I have (not in my state) cannot be beat by locals without extremely expensive cost of entry... Why:

1) The state does not have enough turbine aircraft. Would require extra aircraft to be brought in. That us how we did it, for a boogie. Common practice I know, but see point two.

2) Simply not enough active local jumpers to fill the slots. Is it realistic to expect organizers to find 40+ people to go thru AFF and get 300+ jumps?

I just thought this could be a fun way to let the "locals" have fun too. But the votes are in, the idea is not supported.
